are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel. richard, fill us in a little more this morning. >> reporter: good morning. a libyan source has told nbc news that the u.s. ambassador who was visiting the consulate was killed along with three others. not sure of the nationality of those three others. the u.s. state department has not confirmed this, but this has been told to us by a senior security source in libya. we've been also told that the libyan prime minister and the libyan president will both be speaking today about this subject, offering their condolences to the united states and to the family of the fallen ambassador. and this is according to the report. we were told that when gunmen and a mob stormed the consulate building, they first attacked it with rpgs, then the
of violence will shake the resolve of the united states of america. >> good morning. it is thursday, september 13th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set, national affairs editor for "new york" magazine, john heilman, richard haass. and in washington, nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent and host of "andrea mitchell reports," andrea mitchell. >> we have so much to talk about this morning. of course breaking news overnight. >> yeah. >> we, of course, have been focused on libya. yesterday we were focused on the political scrap that was taking place while we had chaotic situations across the globe. >> i'd say it was more than a scrap. >> i think it was a terrible moment, maybe a defining moment in the campaign, of course what's going on in egypt right now. is equally troubling. and i suspect that when the streets clear, perhaps the most troubling aftereffect of this will be what has not been said by the muslim brotherhood or the leaders of egypt. this morning we'll have to get to that later because this morning more breaking news. now out of yemen. >> yep. witnesses say hundreds of demonst
they are lying? >> yes. i think the president of the united states has lied to the american people but i think he may be lying to himself. i think this president is so totally one-sided in his view of islam, he is so misinformed. he is so willfully ignorant, if you look at his cairo speech that was filled with factual errors. this is a president who simply can't face reality when it comes to people who wanted to kill us. when i see bear bearians -- barbarians torturing an american ambassador, i found those scenes horrifying and i think every american should be enraged. i don't want the commander in chief apologizing and talking about some stupid movie. america has the right to be a free country. america stands for freedom. we should be standing up around the world telling these people, we're not going to give in to you. we are prepared to meet your violence with whatever effort takes. we should hunt every one of them down. >> sean: i would really like to know -- what is the president going to do about it? now we are spending $70,000 on an ad in pakistan that shows our secretary of state, our pres
has the judgment and character to be the president of the united states. this morning all of us were shocked to learn that chris stevens, our ambassador to libya, had been killed in an attack there, along with three other american diplomats, all murdered in what u.s. officials are now investigating as a possible terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11. while americans mourned, mr. romney saw a political opportunity. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. in my view, a disgraceful statement on the part of our administration to apologize for american values. >> sympathizing with them all, apologizing for our values? this is rough talk and ugly stuff and president obama responded. >> there's a broader lesson to be learned here. governor romney has a tendency to shoot first and aim later and as president, one of the things i've learned is that you can't do that, that it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and tha
to building bridges between the united states and the arab and muslim world, particularly libya. and i think this is going to sour a lot of americans about the future trajectory of the middle east, about the direction in which the arab spring is headed. and i think particularly this is tragic for syrians. syrians who are now under siege or around 20,000 syrians have been killed by the regime of assad and i think many syrians were hoping for an outside intervention or outside aid to provide some type of save zones. and i think the reality is that after the united states and nato had gone into libya it oust gadhafi, i think there will be far less appetite to want on do anything in syria. >> probably also raises huge questions about money from america that is going to fund some of these governments particularly in egypt where it's $1.5 billion plus another billion that was being put together in a package right now. how do you think that plays out in congress at this point? >> that's absolutely right. egypt is a country which has i think the second or third largest aid package from the united st
know the president of the united states talked to the president of egypt and demanded that kind of treatment from what was a long-time u.s. ally. now it seems to be somewhere in the middle d this is clearly un-american crowd, anti-american crowd, chanting with our blood, our soul, we avenge our prophet. bill? bill: who are the people in the streets? the usual suspects in cairo but what do we know about who the rioters are? >> reporter: you have pretty two defending groups. you have people in the street, who are young angry youths trying to break down the police barricades there. chanting slogans death to america. that kind of thing. if you zoom out a little bit and go 200 yards to your left, we will pan over and go to tahrir square. that is where the muslim brotherhood is holding a huge protest. that's where they tore up a u.s. flag earlier today during friday prayers. and paraded around with a islamist flag. the same islamist flag they put up on tuesday on 9/11. they're also carrying a usama bin laden poster about four feet tall around. that goes with graffiti reportedly spraye

"fox and friends" starts right now. >> gretchen: fox news alert we are showing you live pictures from cairo, egypt, another day of chaos as riulent protest are spreading now. four people have been taken into custody for the horrific attack that took the lives of americans in sir yampt including the ambassador stevens and two navy seals. >> brian: they are doing the investigation amid other reports according to the independent newspaper in london that warnings were given 48 hours prior that violence could be coming to the consolate and our embassy. we did nothing to the defense. that was refuted by the nid. >> eric: but the embassy in libya put out statements prior to the attack. the statements were put out and the attacks would end up in the as a result of four people killed. and there was a knowledge in advance of the protest and you have
states citizens should not be denied by the united states. the issue are they putting roadblocks to get more voter suppression to, to make the process more difficult? if there was supposed to be a period of public comment, why didn't the secretary of state do that? >> heather: is that the issue to have the right to vote? >> here the voter suppression that i'm concerned with. i'm concerned about the suppression of my vote and your vote, of every single voted that is legitimate vote is being tampered down by illegal votes. there are thousands being cast all the the time and it doesn't take that many illegal votes to sway an election. >> i love you dearly but the fact there are thousands and thousands of illegal votes is absolutely non-proven. >> heather: that is not. have you not seen our series right here on fox done by our own eric shawn weekly talking about the issue. >> i don't mean to intererupted but in michigan there is a study that has proven there was 1400 dead people that voted and hundred illegal felons that voted in the last few elections in michigan alone. voters in florida t
dangerous country in the world. and the number one threat to the united states is iran acquiring a nuclear weapon. the suggestion by prime minister netanyahu that the united states should set a red line and say in advance that we would use force if iran achieved a certain level of progress in its nuclear effort doesn't make a lot of sense to me. this is a question of war and peace. and both president obama and president bush have tried to say we need to negotiate with iran and have the ability to sanction it and use force if necessary, but you don't want to put yourself into a corner and use force based on actio and a predetermined level as what the iranians do. so i think president obama is right here to resist that. and israel should know that the united states has its back as the president has said and the united states will do what it must do to stop iran. but let the united states make that decision, not some preimposed red line. i think that makes sense for america. >> president obama on " 6/0 minutes" on sunday said this. let's play a clip. >> and it comes to our national security d
two weeks, especially after the killing of ambassador stevens in libya. for the united states president, once again, there will behose tough remarks about iran, saying time is not limited. the u.s. president is going to be saying that there is just a time limit to diplomacy. the u.s. and many other nations extremely worried about iran's nuclear capability. iran's leader, mahmoud ahmadinejad, yesterday told the united nations in a speech about the rule of law that the security council members should be changed. they are allowing, in effect, israel to possess a nuclear weapon, while all the attention is focused on tehran. earlier in a meeting with reporters, he, in effect, again, questioned israel's legitimacy. this issue, of course, has been seen on the u.n. stage here for years. sometimes it's a side show. there are many other points president obama is going to mention, including saying how these attacks based on a video were totally uncalled for in the middle east region and that free speech must be a cornerstone of american democracy. soledad? >> all right, lots to look forw
the end of it, and they were just wrapping up. but as usual, they blame the united states, israel, and the west in general, and the main protest was, again, as you said, the recent claim that was made that it appeared to be anti anti-islamic. and they issued statements in support of their federal students in egypt and libya. >> all right, shirzad live on the ground in tehran where the protests seem to be over. there were other protests around the region overnight, much larger protests in the capital of sanaa. mohammed jamjoom joins us on the phone right now. he is in beirut, but he has been watching the developments in yemen very closely. what is going on right there, as far as you can tell? >> reporter: well, john, eyewitnesss on the ground there in sanaa tell us that most of the crowd has dispersed. it was initially between 2,000 to 3,000 angry demonstrators, angry over this film that had emerged through the u.s. embassy in sanaa earlier today, but now it's only in the dozens. what we were told by eyewitnesss witnessing all of this is that this was an angry crowd and that at lea

's newly elected president and the former leader of the muslim brotherhood. he called on the united states to support palestinian rights just as it did the arab uprisings. >> just as you've support the revolution of the arab people, i call upon to you lend your support to the palestinians and their endeavor to regain the full and legitimate rights of people struggling to gain its freedom and establish his independent state. >> don't expect the white house to say much about this or other issues this could further strain relations with israel. the all-important jewish vote is already being put to the test. cnn's pop at this har slow in new york with a look at that impact. good morning. >> good morning, carol. well, we had an interesting night last night, we went to two home jewish families in new jersey to join them for their yom kip pup brepur break-fast. president obama got 78% of the jewish vote in 2008. mccain, 21% of
of the united states. >> now to christiane amanpour. i spoke to her earlier. >> he's been described in california real estate. he describes himself as an israeli. he's talked publicly since going into hiding. he says islam is a cancer. he said this was a deliberately provocative film to show that muhammad is a fraud. the film showed him as a pedophile, a womanizer, a thug. it basically denigrated him. you can't cry fire in a crowded theater. so now, one has to really try to figure out the extremists in this country and the extremists out there, who is using this and whipping up hatred. >> one of the things we're seeing now is the consequences of more freedom in the middle east. >> yes, more freedom. i have spoke on the the prime minister of egypt and the new leader of libya. they want good relations with the united states. while this film was kind of hidden in the internet until it got an arabic subtitle and sound track, then it back popular. local imams whipped up fervor. >> the current regimes don't have the control. >> they do and they don't. in egypt, there's a military, a polic
to be broadcast nationwide in the united states on the anniversary of 9/11, and that's why people came out yesterday to demonstrate to stop the airing of this movie which, of course, was never the case. it was just this online movie, offensive to islam. >> that's nbc's richard engel outside the u.s. embassy where you can see protests continue this morning in cairo, egypt. richard, thank you very much. >> we want to bring in andrea mitchell our chief foreign affairs correspondent. andrea, as we await any confirmation from the state department, what can you tell us about ambassador stevens, an experienced diplomat in the middle east. >> a career diplomat. this is a man who had gone to berkeley and had gotten a law degree and a degree from the national war college. he was fluent in french and arabic. he had been a peace corps volunteer in 1983 in morocco, teaching english before he joined the foreign service about nine years later. this is a man who has very adept at social media. he was active on facebook. he was very involved with the community. he had been in benghazi during the conflict,
. but why isn't the united states any closer to getting it? >>> gop candidate mitt romney got another compliment from president clinton today. this time, though -- maybe not much help. >>> and it's been about 24 hours. and nfl fans are still outraged by a call made by a replacement ref in last night's packer-seahawks game. even scott walker pleads he wants the refs back. and hey, they're in a union! what will it take? let's go "outfront." ♪ >>> good evening, everyone, i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, obama vows he'll get the killers. today the president spent 24 minutes of his half-hour speech to the united nations talking about libya, the middle east and ambassador chris stevens. the speech, which was seen by american voters and viewers around the world, mentioned stevens 12 times. as the president paid tribute to him right from the start. >> chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. th
. this is highest judicial office in the united states, farce enforcement. you have the head of the criminal division who is let off the hook in this to the attorney general still going to be in office who is responsible. someone has to be responsible and accountable. i think that is all we're asking for. when a u.s. agent is killed and this kind of money, waetd taxpayer money takes place. >> gregg: the president says his predecessor is responsible. in fact on thursday. president obama told the uni vision audience, i'm sure you saw this -- i'll quote him here. fast and furious was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. congressman, that is utterly untrue, is it not? >> i think that is shameful for the president to say that. yes, there was a fast and furious program before but it was properly operated. you didn't have people killed or weapons gone astray like this. >> gregg: and it stopped in 2007 two years before fast and furious begin. >> and it was a successful program. i have once chaired the criminal drug policy subcommittee in congress and we have done these

[ cheers ] or maybe you're still talking about president clinton and how he broke it down. well, i want everybody to be clear. the path i'm offering isn't quick or easy. it's going to take more than a few years. to deal with all the challenges that we face. but let me tell you something, when i hear the other se talking about how the nation's in decline, i tell them, you must not be getting out much because this is america. and we've still got the best workers in the world and the best entrepreneurs in the world and the best scientists and researchers in the world, and the best colleges and universities in the world. and there's not a country on earth that wouldn't trade places with us right now. so i'm confident our problems can be solved. our challenges will be met. the path i offer is harder, but it leads to a better place. b
